Finally got it painted with a navy blue, added highlights and damages using dry brushing technique for the first time. Came out ok!

Your experience is not unique. I have had the same issue. I just made the detail thicker and re-uploaded- I've tried arguing and hit a wall (a detail?)

IS SHAPEWAYS READING THIS?

What you're saying seems impossible to me since one cannot break a chain very easily. If they insist that the chains are breaking I'll get it printed by someone else that is using the same equipment and I'll create a documentary video showing the forces needed to break the chains. I posted my new multi part cell phone case here and I will be documenting these methods there as I implement them.


Sintershell walls seem to be 1.5 mm, blaming price vs strength. Twice as model wall design rules. o_O

https://www.shapeways.com/forum/index.php?t=msg&goto=104 322&#msg_104322 with 1.55 mm.

And sprue rule says 2 mm (even for short sticks joining small parts). It seems everything that was ok, now is weak.

I have successfully used sketchup for full color sandstone printing using blender (a free cad program) as an intermediate program- I wrote a tutorial and it is here:

Dave, you can upload DAE files directly from Sketchup to Shapeways...no intermediate program needed!

I wrote up an article on pg. 13 of this PDF: http://catchup.sketchucation.com/Catchup_16_2013_01.pdf


Pssst! I wrote a book to help you quickly get your Sketchup models ready for printing. Click here to get it on Amazon

Before it didn't work, and much of the Shapeways material doesn't acknowledge that DAE is supported. but it works now. Just export to DAE, zip it up, and upload it.

Doesn't your tutorial actually specify using Meshlab to convert to VRML before upload? And the text edit step doesn't seem necessary anymore, either.
